Salata Recipe – Afghan Salad


  • Author: MirriamSeddiq

Description

Our Afghan salad (salata recipe) is the perfect pair for a hearty dinner or great as an extremely light lunch. You’ll be done in 5 minutes!


Ingredients

Onion

Tomato

Cucumber

Garlic

Green onion

Dried or Fresh Mint (Dried is traditional)

Lemon juice (fresh if available)

Dill (optional)

Salt and Pepper to Taste


Instructions

Watch the video, but the key to success is small dice. Afghans have the original “chopped” salad. No big chunks or it isn’t a proper salata recipe. Don’t be stingy on the dried mint and lemon juice. It should be tart, herbal, and almost “bracing” for American tastes.

Enjoy!
